ReVISIONS of LA
Presented by LACE, this free arts workshop features drawing lessons from artists Jocelyn Grau, Veronica Duarte, and Andrew Sexton. The intention of the workshop is to explore how urban environments are constructed and what that means to our everyday lives. Materials are provided.
Inspired by MOCA’s current exhibition The Painting Factory: Abstraction After Warhol, this free workshop gives participants an opportunity to tour the exhibition and make paintings that explore popular culture and technology.
